Philadelphia – December 3, 2008 – Let’s face it.  For those of us fortunate enough to have jobs right now, we’re working harder than ever.  Lawyers are no different.  According to a recent survey performed by Robert Half Legal, a third of those polled want to work fewer hours.  Only two percent said they want to make more money.


Mealey’s Litigation Conferences is offering a teleconference to help lawyers find more time in their day.  Effective Time Management for Lawyers” will take place at 1 p.m. ET on Friday, December 5, 2008.  This 100-minute program is accredited for approximately 1.5 CLE credits.


Featured speakers will be Margaret Spencer Dixon Esq. of Spencer Consulting and Catherine Goldhaber Esq. of Segal McCambridge Singer & Mahoney.  


After participating in one event with Spencer, an attorney from a large firm had this to say:   You’d think after years in law school and practicing law in a challenging environment, you would know all you need to know about ‘time management,’ but Meg gave us practical ideas for taking our use of time to the next level, freeing us up to do more of what we choose to do.” 


In addition to being a skilled time manager, co-presenter Goldhaber is in the thick of it.  She is an experienced litigator, author and speaker on asbestos, toxic torts, products liability and environmental litigation.


On the agenda:  identifying, learning and changing your work patterns; organizing information, planning and prioritizing; dealing with multiple matters and deadlines; effective use of technology; managing interruptions, keeping accurate time records and learning when to say “no”; maintaining momentum; effective and responsible delegation; improving meeting outcomes; and project management.
